This patch should be entirely optional.

I believe you said it wasn't necessary because the bootloader supplies
it. My point is that someone needs to know what to put into the bootargs
(setenv / boot.scr / uEnv.txt) - knowing whether it's ttySAC3 vs.
ttySAC2 vs. ttyS0 etc. has been pretty handy for me. In this case, Snow
and Spring use an identical console, so not sure if it might be tty2 or
something elsewhere?

My question of what to use for linux,stdout-path (which was elsewhere
mentioned as successor to bootargs in that regard) remained unanswered.
Should it point to the dp-controller node or what?
